I think this game is actually quite good. I really felt it was myself the character I was moving with the keys, trying to escape from the darkness of the gloom. I'll recommend the game in Twitter.

i really like this game the graphics and the music are very good! i'm old school i like pixelized graphics! you should make full version of this game! very good job!!!!

The game was pretty good for a trial and error game.
what is the plot about exactly.The grave and the darkness seem to imply that the player is dead and going towards the afterlife whereas the fact that you can have a heart attack would suggest you are alive.

I like your analysis.
Thank you for playing.

I liked it. I don't see why so many people are complaining. yes it has trial and error, but there is 0 down time between tries. I didn't feel like the trial and error was actually a big deal except for in the "wrong door level", I don't mind figuring out how to use the limited fires to get all the keys and get to the door (in fact I enjoyed it) but it was a bit annoying when I found a door only to be told that it was the wrong one. I enjoyed the only 1 key mechanic, though I think my game glitched out on that level and my stick was pertinently on fire.
I really enjoyed this game.

Avoid the dark. I have no idea if the light grows small or not, spent five minutes trying to figure it out. I still have no idea.
